Sarah Jessica Parker Confirms Original Stars Returning For Disney+ Hocus Pocus Sequel
Recently we reported that Disney was working on a new Hocus Pocus movie for Disney+, however nothing had been officially announced.
However, during Halloween, actress Sarah Jessica Parker confirmed via Instagram, that her co-stars Bette Midler and Kathy Najimy are set to return for a sequel.
She shared a image from the original movie, along with the tag “Halloween 2019. One for the books.”
When asked by a fan if there is “Any chance of a sequel?!” she revealed: “We have all said yes. Now we wait.” She went on to reply to another fan, asking about “Round 2?”, saying “We await instructions!”
This certainly ads more fuel to the reports of the new Hocus Pocus movie coming soon.
Would you like to see a Hocus Pocus sequel?
I am not sure how I feel about a Hocus Pocus sequel. The first one was such a perfect storm of talent, writing and timing that it will be hard to replicate it. On the other hand, the world has changed even more since the original and there's a lot of potential in the witches interacting with modern technology like touchscreen devices. Having the original stars return does give me a bit more confidence in it, though.
